TUTORIAL: Enabling Your Campus
    Monday July 16, 2012 8:00am - 12:00pm @ Wright 8th Floor

    TUTORIAL: Enabling Your Campus to Simplify Research Data Management with Globus Online

    ABSTRACT: In this tutorial, XSEDE Campus Champions and owners of campus resources will learn how to deliver easy-to-use yet sophisticated data management solutions to their researchers using Globus services. Globus provides research data management capabilities using software-as-a-service (SaaS) approaches, without requiring construction of custom end-to-end systems. Globus services provide secure, scalable, robust solutions to the issues faced by users when moving, storing, and sharing "big data" among distributed research groups. The Globus Transfer service addresses the challenges of moving large data sets between campus/XSEDE resources and researchers' personal computers. The Globus Storage service enables users to place data on campus storage and other cloud storage systems, and allows them to access, update, snapshot, and share versions of their data with anyone on campus as well collaborators at other institutions. This tutorial will demonstrate how a campus can easily enable data management services for their end users using Globus. Participants will learn how to set up a Globus Transfer endpoint using Globus Connect Multi-User (GCMU) and how to create and manage Globus Storage endpoints. Participants also will learn how to set up a MyProxy OAuth server and configure their endpoint to use it for user authentication.

TUTORIAL: Infrastructure Clouds for Science and Education
    Monday July 16, 2012 1:00pm - 5:00pm @ Wright 8th Floor

    ABSTRACT: Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing (sometimes also called "infrastructure cloud computing") has recently emerged as a promising outsourcing paradigm; it has been widely embraced commercially and is also beginning to make inroads in scientific communities. Although popular, the understanding of its benefits, challenges, modes of use, and general applicability as an outsourcing paradigm for science is still in its infancy, which gives rise to many myths and misconceptions. Without specific and accurate information, it is hard for the scientific communities to understand whether this new paradigm is worthwhile – and if so, how to best develop, leverage, and invest in it. Our objective in this tutorial is to facilitate the introduction to infrastructure cloud computing to scientific communities and provide accurate and up-to-date information about features that could affect its use in science: to conquer myths, highlight opportunities, and equip the attendees with a better understanding of the relevance of cloud computing to their scientific domains. To this end, we have developed a tutorial that mixes the discussion of various aspects of cloud computing for science, such as performance, privacy, and standards, with practical exercises using infrastructure clouds and state-of-the-art tools. We will be using FutureGrid clouds for the examples.
